2. All posts should contain a source (url) that is as reliable and unbiased as possible and must only contain one link.


Obvious right or left wing sources will be removed at the mods discretion. We have an actively updated blocklist, which you can see here: https://lemmy.world/post/2246130 if you feel like any website is missing, contact the mods.

4. Post titles should be the same as the article used as source.


Posts which titles don’t match the source won’t be removed, but the autoMod will notify you, and if your title misrepresents the original article, the post will be deleted. If the site changed their headline, the bot might still contact you, just ignore it, we won’t delete your post.

Even when confronted with the truth, millions have the anger and fear permanently imprinted on their minds. That's why Putin's psyops war fare is so incredibly effective, particularly against the poorly educated.

Too bad it didn't happen and didn't work.

Right? Even the fan fiction could have had a happy ending….but no.

If Ukraine actually did assassinate Tucker, I’d only support them more.

Yeah this is like when Republicans say shit like "Democrats want to nationalize the oil industry!" To try and scare people but Im just over here like nah no way the dems are that cool.

I'd even donate some money to the program where they write your custom messages on the shells.

[–] [email protected] 54 points 3 months ago (1 children)

Yeah I'd definitely feel more compelled to send a donation - I'm not a fan of tipping culture, but doing the world a service like that would merit some kind of reward.

It wouldn’t have to be Ukraine, either… if the Nazi party took out tucker, I’ll never support their ideals, but good service is good service.

Waiting for the Musk comment about how awful it is Ukraine would try such a thing...

You should probably spend your time doing literally anything else.

More likely, he'd just reply to the tweet with 'interesting' and let his followers to the rest.

Basically why I hate Joe Rogan too. He'll have misinformation and lies on his show and he'll just go "I never thought of that". He pretends to be someone just asking questions but he's clearly spreading it on purpose

[–] [email protected] 26 points 3 months ago (1 children)

Well said about Rogan. I feel the same way. It's called JAQing off and he's an expert.

Great link! What exactly is rationalwiki.org?

[–] [email protected] 3 points 3 months ago

It's a wiki created by skeptics. It can be snarky at times, but it's still quite useful.
